Dear Maple community,

I've added a label to one of my plot similar to (a+b+c)/a. How can I prevent Maple from rearranging it to (c+a+b)/a? I think it might have something to do with typeset..?

Thank you very much for your support!


Dear Maple community,

I just recently purchased Maple 2016.2 Student Edition for my bachelor thesis and ran into an issue I was unable to resolve myself, maybe I didn't find the right English search terms..?

I need to use a small greek gamma with a horizontal bar above it. I know how to use accents, though, in output the bar is missing and this seems to apply for gamma ONLY. Is it just me or is it a bug maybe? I used exactly the same procedure to enter all variables.

The same problem returns when I try to add gamma to a plot label, so I think it's somehow connected.

From what I gathered so far, maybe it's possible to work around by editing some sort of Maple source code..? But I wouldn't know how to do that, so any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks in advance and best regards from Germany


Hi there,

I'm new here. My first question:

Is there a way to make Maple output display explicit multiplcations signs in 2D-math?

When you enter 5*2^x Maple will output 5*2^x. Is there a way to make Maple display the multiplications signs in output in stead just implicit multiplication signs (i.e. whitepaces)? (I would settle for Maple display all multiplication signs in output - not just the ones which are made explicit in the input.)

I searched this site. No luck. I looked into "Typesetting Rule Assistant", but I couldn't find a way to alter the output of multiplication sign (*).

Can you guys help me?

Kind Regards,



P.S.: I'm a teacher from Denmark. We use Maple before college/university for a lot of pupils. Some less competent pupils have a tendency to overlook the whitespace.

I did not understand fully some of the notation used in 2D when I had the tools->options->Display->Output display->2D. So I thought if I change it to Maple notation. I might see what the symbol actually mean.  But when I did so, the result was even more confusing. Full of typesetting:-mrow commands and hard to read.

Here is the output in 2D

int(1/( (x-a)*(x-b)),x=-infinity..infinity  );

And here is the output when I switched to Maple output:

I was expecting to see "normal" looking Maple commands, which I can understand. Even the Latex is easier to read than the above mumple jumple code:


Does this mean one should forget about using Maple notation for output from now on? Why is it the output so complicated?

#Hello people in Mapleprimes,




#shows f'(x).



#shows just df(t1)/dt1, not f'(t).

#Can't I show f'(t1) not df(t1)/dt1?

#Is this a way peculiar to Maple?

#I hope someone could give me some hints.


#Best wishes.






Please how do I type accents in code edit region of maple 2015.1 (for instance putting "Hat over" on alpha)?

Thank you.

Is it possible to subscript within a plot?

for example I have

this in principle is what I want but, the N is cursive while is O is not (and it's a bit shifted to the right, not right next to the [2] !???

Also I didnt find the meanings of mi(),mn(),mo(),mfenced()... in the help documentation which I stumbled across while googling.

for example in this case:


what do I need them for since without the mi it doesnt work?!

Is it possible to use latex notation within the plot options for more convenience?

BTW: When plotting a .ps or .eps the plotting device takes over all the features (like the examples above) but when using png instead it just prints the code behind it ( for example the `#mover(mi("x"),mi("~"))` ) and not would it should lead to

Suppose that I have a plot:

plot(sin((1/180)*Pi*x), x = -180 .. 180)

I want to add a degree symbol after the tickmarks on the x-axis.  One approach which seem promising is to add a plot option for the x-axis:

axis[1] = [tickmarks = [90 = typeset("90", degree)]]

where "degree" is replaced by a code for the degree symbol. Maple is helpful here because I can point and click using the Common Symbols palette and insert a degree symbol. However this does not work delivering an error "Error, invalid neutral operator". This error is undocumented. 

I can insert a Pi or an infinity symbol. If I want to I can put a degree sysmbol into ther title, but apparently not on the axes.


I'm trying to insert $(x_0,y_0)$ into a Maple plot (that's how LaTeX would be written). I want to do this with a Maple command rather than creating the plot then hand-tailoring with mouse clicks. This is what I've tried without success:

p1:=plot(sin, -Pi..Pi,-1..1):



For *something* I've tried such as




where try is something like (x[0],y[0]) and [(x[0],y[0])] and similar forms.

No joy! Any help appreciated.


A strange verical line in output of dsolve.Should be a comma in Jacobi SN function and comma's in invert Jacobi SN function.

Can anyone help me confirm this?

Why the interface typesettings option doesn't affect the content of a MathContainer?

I opened a new document. Then I inserted the command interface(typesetting=extended); to improve the visualization of a disequation's solution. It works in the worksheet, but it doesn't work in the content of a MathContainer.

In Maple 2015, on windows 8.1 64-bit the command
series(2*x*(x-y)/y, y = 0, 3);

which is incorrect. The answer is

You can notice the minus sign in front the the -2x is incorrectly typeset, which makes me wonder if it's a bug in the typsetting program and not series itself.

Please fix asap

Sorry for the bad format, maple input is not working.

In particular,from an expression, something like

 Int(x*f(x), x = 0 .. 1)+ Int(x, x = 0 .. 1/3)+3* Int(x*f(x), x = 0 .. 2/3)

I want to extract 


That is all the integrands occuring in the expression. GetIntegrand helps to find the integrand but only for one integral, how do I do it for an expression like above.


I tried to apply following approach

subs(sin(c::anything)=c, sin(x)+f);

and the output was


I was expecting to get only 'x+f' for output.

EDIT 1: 

Thank you so much for your help. You guys answered exactly what I asked for. I needed this to do something different but I should have been more careful. I realized, I could not get that part now. This is what I actually need to do, if

A:=-(5/8)*x*(Int(f(x), x = 0 .. x))+(5/24)*(Int(f(x), x = 1/3 .. x))-(1/4)*x*(Int(x*f(x), x = 1/3 .. x));

then I wish to get a function, g(xi),

g(xi)= -(5/8)x*f(xi) ;   if 0<= xi <= x
                                                  (5/24)*f(xi)-(1/4)*x*xi*f(xi) ; if 1/3<= xi<= x

Notice, all the terms after integral should use variable 'xi' and terms occurring before integral remains as it is.

I would like to implement a rule for typeseting delayDotProduct in latex exports (in which this expressions appears in plain form). It corresponds to dot products of vectors/matrices with the "." operator. I tried to define 

sprintf("{ {%s}{%s} }",cat(`latex/print`(f1)),cat(`latex/print`(f2)))
end proc:

which does not do the job. 


A related question: How can I make


produce x''(t) in latex output?

How is vertical text created in a plot?  It would be similiar to using the labeldirection option set to "vertical", but my text in question will be an annotation within the field of the plot.  A more general question would be how to place rotated text within a plot.
